He's only gone and done it. Great performance than can only inspire confidence. On paper, they should have stuffed us. On grass however...[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] wrote:Hopefully more than last August.
West Brom have made some decent signings so I can't see us getting anything today.
Bristol City have also made some good signings like Mo Eisa, Andreas Weimann and Marley Watkins so will be a more attacking side than last season with quality up front. Meanwhile we're picking up their sloppy seconds (Gary O'Neil) Home match so we may get a point but it will be tough.
Reading showed last night that they have improved and were unlucky to concede a last minute goal to Derby so I expect them to beat us at their ground. They've bought loads of players notably Sam Baldock who is a decent striker.
Birmingham are hard to assess. Robbo has finally retired, they let Lowe come to us but they've brought in Fabbrini. On balance they seem in the same boat as us so it could go either way. A point.
Sheff Utd have spent a load on players notably McGoldrick who we wanted and Ben Woodburn from Liverpool - theoretically they'll be better than us on paper. Depends on how they gel.
I'm thinking two points from 5 games but this is football and we may yet sign a quality striker who could make a difference - and a bit more pace wouldn't go amiss. If we are to do better than that we need a strong performance today because if we put up a good fight it may engender confidence and we can all forget about Guiseley.
Without sufficient investment, our only hope is that Parky can somehow patch this squad together and find a winning formula. Go Parky!

Maybe he'll win the September competition (when I put it up) instead!
